Thanksgiving 101

Can you believe Thanksgiving is literally just around the corner!? If you haven't done your Thanksgiving shopping yet, we've got you covered!
Read below to find our favourite places to get everything you need in order to make a delicious Thanksgiving meal.

Let’s start with the turkey
We love supporting Two Rivers Meats all year round but a thanksgiving turkey has to be the winner.
They have local, free-range turkeys ready to be enjoyed by you and your family - make sure to call and put your order in fast, these guys are popular! Queensdale Market is another great place to find a delicious, free-range turkey. Not to mention they have almost everything else you need to make a delicious meal!

Sides Sides Sides
Some will argue that the side dishes are what really make a Thanksgiving meal.
Delicious roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, and stuffing!  How could you go wrong?  Here are our favourite local produce stores to make your thanksgiving side dish dreams come true. Foxy Farm Market is one of our favourite places to buy our products. Tucked away on a side street in lower Lonsdale, they sell tons of local or Canadian produce, and support many small businesses and farms! Nourish Market is another great spot to pick up 100% organic, local produce. They are a family-owned market specializing in organic, natural and gourmet goods (if you get in early, you might be able to pick up an ethically raised turkey from here too)! 

There’s no Thanksgiving without a little pumpkin pie
If you're a whiz in the kitchen and bake your own pies, then we deeply admire you. If you're a little more strapped for time and are looking for a quick pie fix, we’ve got you covered! We love Savory Island Pie Compan where you can place your order online, and pick it up at their West Vancouver baker.
It doesn’t get more convenient than that! Check out their website to order online now.

Lift Breakfast Bakery is another delicious local bakery and this thanksgiving they are offering both a pumpkin pie and (drum roll please) a pumpkin spice cheesecake! Check out their Instagram to view options and how to order.

Now if all of this seems like a little too much, don’t worry. We have a very easy solution - Thanksgiving To Go! Check out Glowbal Restaurant or Boulevard Vancouver to order a delicious all-inclusive Thanksgiving meal.

Finish off with a bit of Fall decor
If you’re a DIY lover, then we're sure you're already familiar with Michales.
We love Michales for fall decor, whether you want to make it yourself, or buy beautiful ready to use decor, they have you covered. We also love checking out Mos General Store, you can head over and browse through their gorgeous collection of home decorations, and maybe even grab a latte to-go.

We hope this helps you find everything you need to pull off a delicious Thanksgiving meal. Wishing you all a wonderful long weekend with friends and family!
